The first two pics are from 2018 and the 3rd and 4th pics are from Saturday. Same location. Different deer or same?

Appreciate your thoughts.

And I know the pics aren’t great, but any thoughts on age for the 2019 deer would be helpful too.

Thanks

Looks like it could be the same with the weak left side brow. Based off those pics 4.5 this year but hard to say

Not gonna say they couldn't be the same, but I think they are two different bucks. First buck looks to have smoother beams without the bumps, his G-2's are longer than his 3's and his brow tine on the right side curves in and back.

Second buck's 3's are longer than his 2's he seems to have rough bases and his brows seem pretty straight. Also the fork created by the G-4 and end of the beam seem to have a different shape than the first buck.

Not much to go on for the second on age other than he looks thick. The first one looks mature last year.

If the second set of pics is a 4 year old then I say no way they are the same because that first one aint a 3 year old.

I had the same thoughts on the 2's and 3's. Deer seem to keep one pattern or the other in my experience.

Also the first buck's 2's and 3's curve in at the tips on the right side and the second pictures don't appear to. Lot of little differences make me think different. They also do kind of look alike. Either way both good looking bucks or a good looking buck, problem I wouldn't mind having! deer2

I noticed that too, but it's just an anomaly with the image. Definitely the same deer.

Looks to me like the first 2 pics are a different buck than the last 2 pics. Length of tines is different. Looking at the G2's and G3's. Both are very nice deer and I would be extremely pleased with either.
